Chateau d'Angludet Margaux, 1983
The cork on this wine was not in great shape, and there was even some high neck ullage. But my worries quickly faded when I sniffed the wine. It has a beautiful Margaux-like perfume of sweet cherries, tea, herbs that carry over nicely into the flavors. It's very ripe and very smooth on the palate with just a bit of a herbal/tea edge. After 31 years in the bottle, this 1983 d'Angludet is holding quite well--although the cork and ullage on the remaining bottle in my cellar looks even worse. I'll have to open it soon.
